Indian-American mix At the Republican debate, Vivek Ramaswamy stole the show

Indian-American mix At the Republican debate, Vivek Ramaswamy stole the show.
Vivek Ramaswamy once proclaimed himself to be the “only person on stage who is not bought and paid for.”

Vivek Ramaswamy, an Indian-American businessman, received both a lot of attention and a beating during yesterday night’s debate amongst the eight Republican contenders for president of the United States in Milwaukee.

On the platform with Ramaswamy were the governors of North Dakota and Arkansas, as well as the former governors of New Jersey and New Jersey, Chris Christie, Ron DeSantis of Florida, Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, and Mike Pence of the United States.
According to the most recent polls, Ramaswamy, who was second behind Trump in the lead, claimed to be the “only person on stage who is not bought and paid for.”

Pence, who has worked in the political system for many years, called Ramaswamy a “rookie” and claimed that the US has “no time for on-the-job training.”

“Look, Joe Biden has hurt our nation both domestically and internationally. On-the-job training should not be done right now. We don’t need to hire a newbie, he added. We also don’t need to hire inexperienced individuals. “Vivek, you recently claimed that a president cannot perform all duties. Well, Vivek, I have some news for you. The hallway was where I was. The West Wing was where I was. The president of the United States must address every situation that affects the country, Pence continued, taking another shot at Ramaswamy’s lack of political experience.

A debate ensued after Ramaswamy stated that a “real discussion” might start once the senior politician was finished with his or her “prepared slogans.” When the Indian-American businessman said that the US was experiencing a “national identity problem” at another point in the discussion, Pence retorted, “We don’t have an identity crisis, Vivek. We do not seek a new sense of national identity.

When talking about criminality, the two started arguing once more. Ramaswamy poked fun at Pence by saying, “Some people like you on this stage may have a ‘It’s morning in America speech. In America, it is not yet morning. We must acknowledge that we are engaged in a kind of internal, chilly cultural civil war at the present time because we live in a terrible time.

Former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie claimed that Ramaswamy’s responses appeared to have come from ChatGPT. Ramaswamy made a pointed statement on Christie’s campaign, calling it “based on vengeance and grievance” against Trump.

Ramaswamy, who is 38 years old, disagreed with former UN envoy Haley about US assistance to Ukraine.

At the Fox News debate, Ramaswamy declared, “This is disastrous. We are defending against an invasion across someone else’s border when we should use those same military resources to prevent the invasion across our southern border here in the United States of America.” Instead of securing another country’s border, he continued, “We need to secure our own.”

During one of the most heated arguments of the evening, Haley fired back, accusing him of “wanting to hand Ukraine to Russia” and added, “You have no foreign policy experience, and it shows.”

The attack on Ramaswamy was dubbed “surprising” by CNN, who also suggested that his opponents may have tried to stop him from gaining momentum after recent surveys showed him taking the lead.

Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, put up a lackluster performance despite being considered to be the debate’s main attraction.

According to The Guardian, the governor of Florida “was frequently reduced to a spectator as Ramaswamy threw rhetorical punches and others hit him back.”

The Ron DeSantis campaign, in my opinion, is over. The eldest son of the former US president, Donald Trump Jr., told AFP, “I believe we’ve probably been witnessing that for a while. “Things changed once people saw him—not the kind of manufactured, paid influencer, two-second clip version of him.”
